If I said “Bumble”, many of us would immediately think of the Abominable Snowman from “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” Christmas tv movie. The annual special has entertained families for decades, through multiple generations.
As a child, I watched it on television. As a parent, I watched “Rudolph” with my own children on tv. Even though our children are grown, we still watch the movie every year at Christmastime.
The Abominable Snowman, Bumble, happens to be my husbands favorite character on Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. As a matter of fact, his love for Bumble is so well-known in our family, that my parents gave him a Bumble yard decoration for Christmas last year.
Bumble Lighted Yard Decoration
ProductWorks Pre-Lit Faux Fur Bumble with Light Strand Christmas Yard Art Decoration and Clear Lights, 32″ TallAt 32″ tall, Bumble is easily visible from the street as neighbors, friends, or Christmas sightseers drive by the house. In our area, it is tradition for a lot of families to drive around looking at the Christmas lights. Since it is free (except for the cost of gas) it is a popular family outing. Therefore, we enjoy decorating our yard and home for the enjoyment of all.
For his first year in our home, my husband refused to put him outside. He wanted him to be protected from the elements. Actually, I think he just wanted Bumble closer to him throughout the holidays. So, we placed him in our front window. Several of our neighbors commented on how much they loved him. One couple stopped us on a walk around the block to tell us how their children made them drive by our home every night just so they could see the lighted Bumble. I found that rather funny. Most people enjoy seeing lighted Christmas trees, but kids seem to prefer the lighted Bumble.
As stated above, the Abominable Snowman lighted yard decoration is 32″ tall. He is lit from the inside. The strand of lights wrapped around his body are not actually lighted individually, but the Christmas lights still appear to be lit in many places. Even when the Bumble is not plugged in, he is still a really cute fuzzy snowman wearing a Santa hat.
